Adele’s New Song Is Every Bit As Good As You Want It to Be


We were teased yesterday on Twitter and Facebook by an ad for an exclusive performance on 60 Minutes Australia. Now you can watch the full performance of Adele’s new new song, “When We Were Young,” the follow up to her first single in three years, “Hello”, and the second song from the forthcoming album “25.” The film clip is directed by Paul Dugdale, and shot at The Church Studios, the legendary north London recording spot.

For fans of Adele, the main feeling is relief—that it’s a real comeback. Here’s the conversation I had with Mother Jones creative director Ivylise Simones when she texted me urgently this morning with the link:

Here’s that teaser for the 60 Minutes interview:

And just for the die-hard fans, here’s a GIF of that diva moment, sized for Twitter’s 2MB limit, to be used at your leisure:

THE TRUTH...

is the first thing despots go after. An unwavering commitment to it is probably what draws you to Mother Jones' journalism. And as we're seeing in the US and the world around, authoritarians seek to poison the discourse and the way we relate to each other because they can't stand people coming together around a shared sense of the truth—it's a huge threat to them.

Which is also a pretty great way to describe Mother Jones' mission: People coming together around the truth to hold power accountable.

And right now, we need to raise about $400,000 from our online readers over the next two months to hit our annual goal and make good on that mission. Read more about the information war we find ourselves in and how people-powered, independent reporting can and must rise to the challenge—and please support our team's truth-telling journalism with a donation if you can right now.
